How to Wear Animal Print Like a Cool Girl
There’s a very fine line between looking chic in animal print and looking like you’re in need of a make-under. Rather than feeling the fear and avoiding these prints—or overthinking it—let this be your animal print style bible. We’ll ensure you look chic andnevercheap.
Our wardrobe inspirations for this exploration include Kate Moss (queen of the leopard print off-duty coat) and Liv Tyler, and we’ve taken notes from the FROW at Céline and Miu Miu A/W 15, of course.
Scroll down to take style notes and shop our favourite statement animal prints!
Céline A/W 15
Catwalk Notes:Phoebe Philo reinvents the zebra print and makes it instantly wearable, fresh and contemporary thanks to the clean lines of this trench, paired with a turtleneck top, saddle shoulder bag and luxury super-sneakers. This coat could be teamed with jeans or a dress; just follow suit and make the coat the statement, dial down the rest.
Miu Miu A/W 15
Catwalk Notes: We love a fashion contradiction! Muiccia Prada's lavish feast at Miu Miu was a real contrast from the fresh, contemporary collection at Céline. Let's say that the rule book was royally ripped up on the Miu Miu runway, and it worked. The style take-home here is simple: If you're going to punctuate an outfit with a leopard print coat, then make sure the style, cut and theme follow through into the outfit. This look is 100% retro '60s, therefore anything goes.
Miu Miu A/W 15
Catwalk Notes: If you're going for a more-is-more outfit approach, then incorporate splashes of animal print on classic accessories made in premium leathers.
Style Notes: If in doubt, wear your zebra coat with monochrome. It works.
Style Notes: Denim-on-denim is the perfect laid-back foundation for a statement leopard print coat. Copy that.
On Teisback: Céline sunglasses; Acne Studios jacket; Envii by Pernille Teisbaek leather culottes; Boyy bag.
Style Notes: Further to the monochrome note, natty leather accessories will punctuate a loud animal print coat.
On Moss: Burberry Suede Clutch Bag in Tiered Leather (£495), Deerskin Boots (£595), coat and belt.
Style Notes: Play matchy, matchy with your coat and belt but keep your base layers classic black.
On Moss: Burberry Animal Print Rabbit Coat (£6000), Alchester Leather Bag (£1050); Adidas (£67).
Style Notes: Further to Moss's animal print formula, wear spray-on with a staple black top, slip on those comfy Adidas Originals and then top it all off with your look-at-me coat. Perfection.
